General McChrystal: Now is your time to stand up for your country
Post & Email ^ | June 22, 2010 | Sharon Rondeau

Posted on 06/22/2010 7:04:03 PM PDT by USALiberty

General, ABC News has reported that you were “disappointed” in your first meeting with Obama after he was illegally installed in the White House. Well, we, the American people, will be even more disappointed if you do not uphold your oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and confront this usurper who is like a cancer on our nation. Or are you part of the corrupt military establishment which has carried on this national nightmare in which our republic is systematically being destroyed?

You have a choice. You could assume the distinct honor of demanding the arrest of Obama and all of his illegitimate cronies tomorrow. You could use this opportunity to save America, or you can continue to play along with Obama’s pretense of eligibility and authority because it is the easy way out. Which will it be?

Which will it be, General?

This is a pivotal time for McChrystal and America. Let's hope he does the right thing and that the rest of the Pentagon back him up!

General McChrystal is an obama voter, and in my opinion, deserves jail for treason.

Yea a military junta that would work....some of you are delusional. The general had a Patton moment(s). Let’s not coronate the guy a saint, he acted like a jackass and even he admitted as such. He will be fired and the Obama attack machine will begin destroying him. He should have resigned and then said what he wanted.

You are talking about his admission that he voted for Zero right?

No coup d’etat!

No junta!

If you go down that path once, it keeps on happening, and sooner or later, the generals don't bother putting civilians in office.

The remedy is coming in 2010 and 2012. Vote the jerk out.

Let's be logical here. McChrystal isn't going to throw a 30+ year military career down the toilet. When all the dust settles he'll be lucky to be allowed to retire. The regime is very sensitive to criticism, to say the least. The Chicago thugs we have in charge will get their revenge on McChrystal. I haven't seen the Rolling Stone article but it sounds like he sounded the alarm on what we have running the war. It's up to the media to follow up and start exposing the lack of leadership here. Given their slavish devotion to Soetoro, I'm not holding my breath.

I can't say anything good about Obama.
But McChrystal was out of line. Generals do what the politicians tell them. If they don't like it, they can resign, and then they can write a book. While you're wearing the uniform, you don't bad mouth the leadership. Even if the leadership is [sigh] Obama.

Nope. We have a clown in the White House, no doubt. But - like it or not - he is the Commander in Chief. When that order breaks down, we will not be the USA ever again.

If the wording of the following oath is still in effect, an officer does not have to follow the POTUS’ orders:

“I, _____ (SSAN), having been appointed an officer in the Army of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God.” (DA Form 71, 1 August 1959, for officers.)

When you read the article McChrystal and his staff will come off like a pack of frat boys. He had his chance to stand up when Pat Tillman was killed but he took a pass. I think it is way past time for him to go.

How? Where? What? Please give me a quote from the General from the article.

I read this article cover to cover .... and had I read the article without this media firestorm I would have dismissed it as another liberal rag dissing a military leader.

Please...what did I miss? What did McChrystal say that was "out of line".

Thanks.

Well, we, the American people, will be even more disappointed if you do not uphold your oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and confront this usurper who is like a cancer on our nation.

The American people (including McChrystal) elected Obama. He's the president, and McChrystal's commander-in-chief.

You have a choice. You could assume the distinct honor of demanding the arrest of Obama and all of his illegitimate cronies tomorrow.

There's no honor in engaging in banana-republic tactics that make a mockery of the concepts of democratically elected leadership and civilian control of the military. Obama is a disaster as a president - but he is the legitimately elected president and policy differences do not justify coups. Your solution would inflict far more damage on America than Obama is capable of. Vote the guy out in 2012.

Define leadership.

Does leadership equate McCain with “dead fish”, or Palin with “lipstick on a pig”?

I'm not - if someone wants to provide real proof that he isn't, plenty of members of Congress would be happy to get it and begin impeachment proceedings. Until then, we should be concentrating on removing Obama's Congressional majorities this fall, and sending Obama home in 2012. Fantasies about the military removing a president aren't just unrealistic, we should pray they never become realistic.

Our country has become a banana “republic” run by Chicago thugs, ACORN, “gay” activists, marxists and leftists of all stripes, rife with bribery, threats, backrood deals and illegalities galore; topped off with an ineligible “president” sitting in the White House who may very well be not even a US citizen of any kind at all.

This is completely different and even the most experienced military guys are saying it - sadly. Even borderline personal ridicule of the CIC is not good coming from the commander in the field and can be considered rank insubordination. It is a breakdown in command and military discipline. And to read it in the Rolling Stone? McCrystal should have known better - and I suspect he does. I would not be surprised if he knew the firestorm was coming.

I don't get your exclusivity observation with respect to Republican Presidents. Patton/Roosevelt, MacArther/Truman, Westmoreland/Johnson. Each challenged, in different ways - but not in this way.

It was a reference to the Rolling Stones article. It was suggested that “Bite Me” is the nickname for Biden among the General’s inner circle.

(But I do bite myself when I snore at night. I bite my tongue. Some would say that is a good thing!)

Biting one’s own tongue really hurts and for some reason (swelling?) encourages more of the same. I try to avoid it.

No one here is calling for a coup. If it were discovered that Obama is NOT a natural born citizen then he is NOT president. He would be lawfully removed and prosecuted for massive fraud. At every stage the rule of law would be peacefully followed and upheld.

Allowing a non-natural born citizen to remain in the White House trashes the rule of law and grinds the Constitution into the mud of tyranny.

If Obama is not a natural born citizen then he was FRAUDENTLY elected. He was **never** legitimately elected, and he is NOT and never can be president. He would be a criminal though.

Obviously they can’t do anything yet. We have to wait for the Republicans to return to majority in both houses. Once that’s done, I’m 100% certain they’ll start bringing Obama down and demanding that he prove his natural born citizenship. Absolutely. For sure. So don’t forget to vote Republican this November! They’ll definitely care about the constitution then. Without a doubt.

We had a constitutional change of government in 2009. What one man can do, another government can undo. Executive orders can be turned away immediately. The Health Care bill can be repealed with a conservative Congress and a president like Palin. The military should focus on our external enemies.
